Rosie O’Donnell with help from some Broadway actors is taking her anti-Trump show straight to the president’s doorstep.
The one-time TV host is leading a group of entertainers from various Broadway shows in a protest outside the White House scheduled for Monday.
O’Donnell tweeted about the event to her more than one million followers, calling them to join her at “the Kremlin annex.”

The former “The View” co-host will reportedly be joining the actors in renditions of “A Brand New Day” from The Wiz, and “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” from The Sound of Music as well as songs from the Broadway hit Les Miserables.

A decades-long feud has been going on between O’Donnell and President Trump, with the two engaging in name-calling and hurling insults at each other as far back as 2006. The actress is a vocal critic of the president whom she has called “mentally unstable.” Trump has slammed the bully activist as a “loser” on several occasions.
A New York Post report in May revealed that O’Donnell repeatedly broke Federal Election Commission rules and donated to at least five Democratic political candidates running for federal office. She allegedly used five different addresses with four different versions of her name to make the contributions which laws limit to $2,700 per election.
Monday’s protest at the White House is being organized by Broadway veteran and SiriusXM host Seth Rudetsky.

The protest, which will be streamed live on the progressive group MoveOn’s Facebook page. is not O’Donnell’s first outside 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Last February, she led a protest just ahead of Trump’s first address to Congress.
